Live Well with COPD Bi-Annual Test.

Here we have an amazing bunch of people who inspire me each and every week.

Westbrook Wellness is very pleased to work with and see the self help support group Live Well with COPD achieve very encouraging results in their bi-annual, 6 minute walk test. βœ”οΈπŸ€Έβ€β™‚οΈ

In the video clip you see part of one training protocol I have developed for the group, designed to be challenging yet achievable to the majority, while maintaining functional relevance to improve or maintain cardiorespiratory fitness.

If you know of anyone who suffers with COPD this groups are local to Gosport, hold regular social events, have a great sense of humour and are very welcoming. I would highly recommend them to anyone with COPD. βœοΈπŸ“œ

My sessions are Fridays 1200-1300 at Gosport Leisure Centre. Please feel free to pop by.

The results. πŸ’ΉπŸ“ˆπŸ“ŠπŸ“‹πŸ“Ž
